I love make-ahead salads for quick go-to lunches and snacks!! You can be intentional with your ingredients, or just use up all the leftovers in your fridge. And to be honest, that's what this was for me.
Once you know the basic way to make homemade dressing, you just throw a bunch of things in a bowl and voila!! You have deliciousness!!
I hope you love this and get creative with it - make it your own. And message me with your creations too!!! I want to hear from you!
Make-Ahead Couscous Salad
1 1/2 cups of leftover whole wheat couscous (already cooked)
1 cup of garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 cup diced red pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon
4 T olive oil
2 T red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
Mix everything together in a large bowl and keep in the fridge until you eat it. When you are ready to serve yourself, just gently toss again to redistribute the dressing.
